A bar mitzvah is a very important day in a boy’s life: it’s the ceremony at which he becomes a man. So when someone chooses to use you as the theme for his bar mitzvah, you have to know that you’ve been a great influence in his life. A named Will Rubin from Media, Pennsylvania did just that with Jimmy Kimmel: his reception was Jimmy Kimmel Live!-themed. So Kimmel did what any late night host would do: he video-chatted Will during the show to find out how the party went. (Kimmel also sent an ice sculpture of his sidekick Guillermo’s head to the big day.)
But something strange happened as Kimmel chatted with Will on Thursday night: an interloper took to the stage, wearing a T-shirt and jeans. That interloper was none other than Jon Stewart.
When the erstwhile Daily Show host haunts late night, he usually chooses to visit Stephen Colbert’s set in New York. He’s also usually there to shout about politics. But he evidently happened to be on the West coast, where Kimmel films his show, on Thursday—and he never brought up the Trump administration during his appearance.
“I’m Jon Stewart; I’m a talk show host as well—I was, years ago,” Stewart told Rubin via video chat. “And I’m a Jew. You probably had your choice of idolizing any talk show host, and you could have gone with a Jew, is what I’m saying.” After imploring Kimmel to “sheket b’vakasha” (“be quiet please” in Hebrew), Stewart then launched into a quick lecture for Will.
“Did you get that, Will? Did you get that? Do you know who didn’t get that joke? Jimmy Kimmel! Because he’s not a Jew! O.K., Will. Don’t be fooled by his learned-looking beard and his puffy, sad eyes. He’s not rabbinical; he’s just unhealthy. Will, wouldn’t you rather host a talk show host who is also circumcised? He’s not. Will, I don’t know how I put this. How do the kids say this? He’s still wearing his hoodie.”
Kimmel offered a compromise: perhaps Will could have a Stewart-themed wedding. Will said he’d think about it; Stewart sang a line from the Fiddler on the Roof song “Sunrise, Sunset.” Perhaps he, too, is a little daunted by the endless march of time as he figures out his next move post-Daily Show.
